[Extract] The introduction section is normally placed in the beginning of text proper after the abstract. The introduction is what motivates the readers to read a paper. In some journals the introduction section is also called as "Background". The introduction should allow the reader to understand the rest of the paper without referring to previous publication on the topic. It is the first component of IMRAD structure of an original article. Introducing a scientific paper is same as introducing a person to a group of individuals. One often introduces a person by his name, followed by status, place of origin, his/her achievements etc. On the other hand, in a paper, one speaks of the background of the theme of work that is being reported, like what other workers have done so far and what has to be done in future.
